Summary: What a wonderful product this is. The touch pad surface is very responsive and accurate. I cannot say enough about the quality of this devise. I know I will enjoy many years of use from it. It is a little big but I knew that before purchasing it.
Pros: * Easy of installation * Easy of use * Unmatched quality
It works with open source software. I’m already happy.

Summary: [Cons continued] Included regular replacement nibs are great, but I’m surprised there is only one stroke (spring-loaded) and felt (pencil-like) type. There is no storage space on any Intuos3 tablets for the pen, mice, or the penholder, compared to the Graphire and Bamboo tablets.
Pros: Being a user of The Gimp and Inkscape, I can safely say that for the one month I’ve owned the Intuos3 9x12, it is the best addition to my arsenal of hardware for the open-source-software artist. No paid software upgrades is always a good thing! Even tilt sensitivity and the accessory keys/touch s...
Cons: Not exactly a con, but if you are deciding between the Intuos3 6x8, 6x11, and 9x12, do ask yourself about what you plan to work on. Bigger tablets offer more overall precision for one monitor size, but conversely will also require more arm movement for any stroke (and more desk space). Daily tran...
One of the BEST tools you could ever have as an artist

Summary: I've been using Photoshop/PS CS for several years and this was the first artist tablet I have used. It's bigger than I had imagined, so you need to dedicate a lot of room for it. It can feel extremely awkward using it initially, it feels too alien to naturally draw with; I think that's especially...
Summary: I'm not an artist by trade (I'm a jack of all trades) but I've wanted a Wacom tablet for the better part of 15 years. I recently set up a Mac workstation for film editing as well as other creatives (I've got Adobe CS3 installed there as well) and I was reminded and re-inspired to get one after...
Summary: I have wanted a Wacom tablet for years. When I was finally able to afford one for myself, I decided to go for the gusto and get the big'un. This tablet has allowed me to express myself in the digital medium far more than I ever axpected.
Summary: After spending years stumbling around the Adobe Creative Suite with a mouse, I finally bought a Wacom tablet. My only regret is that I did not do it sooner. I thought that there would be a big learning curve but there really wasn't any; I was up to speed in minutes of getting the device in the mail.
Summary: This is my first tablet and after reading a lot online about what to get, I chose this 9x12 because of it's good size and affordability. I'm a designer who works about 60-70 hours a week and starting having numbness in my hand from all the mousing.

Summary: Firstly, you will only appreciate this tool if you draw. If you don't it may be a waste of money and you may enjoy it as much. For those who do draw, it opens up a world of potential and opportunities for you. Its versatile to say the least.
Summary: I started with a 6x8 tablet and it worked great for the 2 years that I had it. But after up-sizing my monitor to an , I noticed a difference in precision. Upgrading to the 9x12 tablet was a smart move. Have a more 1-to-1 tablet-to-screen ratio was a smart move.
